Giving Thanks

November 23, 2011

In honor of Thanksgiving, we decided to take a moment to reflect on and share the things we’re thankful for here at SmallBox. We wish all of you — our friends, clients, blog readers — an abundant and rich Thanksgiving holiday. Tell us what you’re thankful for in the comments!

I am thankful for being completely challenged and overcoming lots of personal goals this year through the help and support of my family, friends and co-workers at SmallBox.

I am thankful to have a creative outlet at work. And for sweet potato pecan pie. Wait — did I just say that out loud?

I am thankful to work in a place that allows me to utilize my strengths and skills, encourages my creativity, and challenges me to continually learn and grow. I also feel very blessed for the incredible people in my life — my husband and daughter, family, friends and co-workers — people that support and encourage me, but also challenge me to dream big and live the abundant life. Oh, and I’m thankful for all the yummy new recipes I can find on Pinterest.

I'm thankful for an opportunity to have an impact for local businesses and local culture through my work. Also for beer... and Settlers of Catan.

I'm thankful to live in a city where people actively support each other's ideas and businesses, to wake up everyday excited about life, to work with great people that challenge me. I’m also thankful for my health since it makes everything else possible, for food, wine and vinyl records, to be married to someone that gets me and to be living in the time between the dawn of the Internet and the inevitable Singularity.

I'm thankful for this year and the new things it has brought, that I got to marry the most amazing person I've ever met, that I have a job where I get to create on a daily basis, and that I have people in my life with which to share my thanksgivings!

I'm thankful I work at a place that doesn't require a wardrobe of "business" clothes and that I get to work with my friends. I’m also extra thankful for my warm house and husband to share it with — and for the gas company’s budget plan.

I am thankful my job is more furk than work, that I often get to tap into my inner kid, that I have the love and support of TWO families (my actual family and my SmallBox family), to have experienced the unconditional love and loyalty of puppies and for the daily outpouring of patience, support and love from my bandmate and boyfriend, Brian.

I am thankful for all that I have learned this year, for the opportunity to stretch and grow my creative self among a great bunch of folks (I’m looking at you, SmallBoxers) and for the support of family and friends, however near or far. And Beer Fridays. Oh, and shoe fives.
